#018 (Moscow) is the second Stratocaster style guitar by Cruzcaster. From the headstock to the body I went with a very burnt look on this build. It has a Fender neck, tuners and tremolo bridge. I installed a set of beautiful sounding hand wound pickups that I bought years ago and was keeping for a special project. This is it. Beautiful clean, smooth rich sound.
From there things got a little wild. When I finish a body I look at the stack of license plates and try to find the perfect one. This one came from some my son found for me and I immediately could see that the intense yellow was the perfect match. From there I went a bit subtle and put ivory coloured pickup covers on it. Well, someone saw a picture of it and wanted to buy it even though it wasn’t finished yet and he insisted on something more “exotic”. Yellow pickup covers. I bought a set and put them on and it got rid of the little bit of subtle and went back to wild. I love it.
Why is it named “Moscow”? Well that’s where it will be shipped to. I would love to see it there. A wild yellow, burnt Cruzcaster playing the blues in Moscow.
